You no longer need to enable SOS as your primary source code control provider from within the SOS Client. This process should be done from within Visual Studio 2005 (Tools, Options, Source Control, Plug-in Selection, Current source control plug-in).

If SourceOffSite doesn't appear as an option from within VS 2005 and the SOS Client currently exists on the machine, you will need to manually create a new string value. From the registry editor under HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\SourceCodeControlProvider\InstalledSCCProviders create a new string value, ProviderRegKey and name it SourceGear SourceOffSite. See the example below. Note: you don't need the SourceSafe entry; it just happens to be on this machine.
